Sabancı Üniversitesi, tüm araştırma projelerinin girişimci bir ruh ile gerçekleştirilmesi ve akademisyenler ile öğrencilerimizin kendilerini her alanda geliştirebilmesi için birden fazla araştırma merkezine ve foruma sahiptir. Bu merkezler ve forumlarda, gerek ülkemizin, gerekse de dünyanın geleceğini şekillendirecek araştırmalar yürütülür ve öğrencilerimiz her sektörde profesyonel bir iş ağı kurma imkânına kavuşur. Nano Teknoloji, Politika Merkezi, Kadın Çalışmaları gibi Sabancı Üniversitesi’ne özgü merkezler, Türkiye’de şimdiye dek görülmemiş türden araştırma projelerinin yürütülebilmesini sağlamaktadır.
Sabancı University Integrated Manufacturing Research and Application Center (SU IMC) locates in Turkey's largest thematic technopark Teknopark Istanbul, is the industrial scale research and technology development center that provides laboratory test, prototype manufacturing, design and simulation services, composite materials in the scope of research and development services, and design, manufacturing, assembly and process prototyping services in the area of manufacturing technologies, also, provides consultancy and training services to governmental organizations and industry corporations.
The center aims to address challenges in functional surfaces and interfaces through the usage of micron- and submicron sized systems exploiting the tools of medicine/molecular biology, material science, nano technology, nano/microfluidics and power generation.
Activities of the center require an in-depth understanding of molecular biology, genetics and biochemistry of diseases, omics approaches, clinical collaborations, chemistry and material fundamentals, surface and interface interactions, power generation in small scale along with targeted device design.
Research and development in EFSUN Center of Excellence consists of interdependent, collaborative, interactive and complementary activities of researchers who are world-class experts in their respective fields.
Sabancı University Nanotechnology Research and Application Center (SU-NUM), is developed with approximately 25 million Euros provided by the State Planning Organization and Sabancı Foundation and became operational in July 2011. The Center provides valuable additional capabilities to the existing research infrastructure of the Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences of Sabancı University. With a contributing team of 40 faculty members, about 40 post-doctoral researchers, and hundreds of Ph.D. students, the Center is engaged in highly effective multidisciplinary research programs, bringing together researchers with expertise spanning advanced materials, basic sciences, and nano-engineering, to address applications in electronics, photonics, healthcare, construction, the environment, agriculture and packaging industries. Within the scope of this collaborative research environment, a major goal is to expedite the development of novel technologies and advanced products to address the needs of local and global technology leaders. The Center is encouraging collaboration with industry, other universities and research institutions to further hone the skills of budding research specialists, which are sought in several advanced technology areas relevant to the interests of Turkey.
Companies in Turkey and across the world seek to mine big data and improve their processes, customer relations and other aspects. From private companies to public institutions, the importance of data analytics becomes more appreciated as the size of the data grows. With the increase in data, the development of techniques that will make use and sense of big data in scientific research gains importance and become predominant in Computer and Industrial Engineering research endeavors.
The reason behind the foundation of CEDA was to provide interdisciplinary solutions to commercial and scientific needs in big data mining, and conduct scientific research that could play a large role in overall research efforts. CEDA will collect big data-related research under one roof, which will better disseminate the studies of researchers of different disciplines on this subject, and enhance cooperation among them. CEDA will contribute to increasing knowledge about data analytics and big data through seminars and publications.
CEDA and the Sabancı University Master's in Data Analytics Program will have a synergistic presence in education and research about data analytics. Furthermore, the Center aims to provide support and knowledge to researchers, faculty as well as undergraduate and graduate students about working with big data thanks to its infrastructure and the contributions of postdoctorate researchers and support personnel.
Students and researchers who have gone beyond the theoretical and acquired working knowledge of the most advanced computer technologies (parallel programming, big data infrastructure, analysis of big data, high-performance computing) will be much better prepared for their work and find jobs more easily.
TÜSİAD - Sabancı Üniversitesi Competitiveness Forum is a research center formed jointly by the Turkish Industrialists’ and Businessmen’s Association (TÜSİAD) and Sabancı University in March 2003. The mission of the center is to help improve the competitiveness of the Turkish private sector in international markets by conducting and supporting research on competitiveness, innovation and technology management, and benchmarking.
